REpower Systems AG has received a contract from National Wind LLC, America’s leading largescale community wind project developer, to supply 20 wind turbines.

The REpower MM92 type turbines have a rated power of 2.05 MW (megawatts) and a hub height of 100 meters. The turbines will be used in the first phase of the Lake Country Wind Energy project in central Minnesota. All phases of the project will total 340 MW.

Following the successful construction of projects in Washington, Oregon, Indiana, Michigan and California, these are the first wind turbines that the US subsidiary of Hamburg-based REpower Systems AG will deliver to Minnesota. “The US market is gradually starting to recover”, says Per Hornung Pedersen, CEO of REpower Systems AG. “This order and the other signed contracts in the last few months show that our North American business is slowly picking up again.”

Steve Dayney, CEO of REpower USA Corp., adds: “We are pleased to be collaborating with National Wind for the first time and to be entering a new state with the Lake Country project. Minnesota is one of the fastest-growing US states for the wind business, which makes it an important and promising region for us.”

“We strongly value our new relationship with REpower and look forward to

building upon it,” says Jack Levi, co-chair of National Wind. “Securing wind turbines is a significant project milestone for Lake Country Wind Energy. Not only is REpower’s turbine technology an ideal fit for the project’s wind regime, it also advances Lake Country’s first phase toward late 2010 construction. It is exciting to bring Meeker and Kandiyohi Counties’ first utility-scale community-owned wind project closer to reality.”

REpower USA Corp. headquartered in Denver, Colorado, has installed or sold more than 400 wind turbines with a total output of over 800 MW in the US since 2007.
